Daniel, Daniel and the sacred harp,
Dancing through the clover.
Daniel, Daniel would you mind,
If I look it over.
G C D7 G
I heard of this famous harp years ago back in my home town
C D Em
But I sure never thought old Daniel be the one to come and bring it around
G D C G
Tell me Daniel how the harp came into your posession.
D C G
Are you one of the chosen few who will march in the procession?
and Daniel said:
G D G D
The sacred harp was handed down, from father unto son,
C Bm Am D7
And me not being related, I could never be the one.
G D G D
So I saved up all my silver, and took it to a man,
C Bm Am G
Who said he could deliver the harp, straight into my hand.
Three years I waited patiently,
'Till he returned with the harp from the sea of Galilee.
He said there is one more thing I must ask,
But not of personal greed.
But I wouldn't listen I just grabbed the harp,
And said take what you may need.
G C D G
Now Daniel looked quite satisfied
